Hazy brown body with a thin head. Yeast, some caramel malts and very mild spiciness but mild for the style make up the aroma. Flavor is hard to break down but milk chocolate toffee and caramel are prevalent however not spicy enough for the style.. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nicely smooth. Not terrible but it is what it is.

My only complaint on this beer is that I wish it had a bigger nose. It's a little subtle but still a wonderful scent. This beer has great malt character and a smooth, easily approachable lager mouthfeel. Not too carbonated and very thirst-quenching. The robust dark malts are not as pronounced as a schwarzbier from Germany. The hops on this beer are not as Euro-bitter as other Munich Dunkels out there. Sweet carmel amber malts and clean finish make this beer delicious. Mexico's best in the U.S.

Notes from my trip to Cancun a few months back.

Light fizzy head fades med pace, clear auburn molasses brown color.

Nose pretty much macro lager, cheap macro lager malts, a little bit of darker malts and crystal malts but not much, light skunk.

Taste light caramel, hit of mocha and cocoa, crystal malts, light lager, just a hint skunk and cheap lager, hint of earthy hops, light fruity lager, juicy creamy malt. Finish is dry and a bit crisp, bit more darker malts and lager fruits.

Mouth is med to a but lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, better than most beers you can get in Mexico, although still cheap tasting and slightly skunked, with unhappy yeast lager flavors.
